Dear New & Continuing EOPS Students,
Starting on Monday, March 20th, the Academic Progress Report (APR) requirement will begin. You will have until Wednesday, April 26th at 3:00pm (and we do mean 3pm) to turn in a completed progress report to the EOPS office (see form attached). This is a very important tool that will give you an indication of your academic status in your courses. It will also help your counselors and your instructors monitor your academic progress, coordinate interventions, and make appropriate referrals (i.e.; tutoring) if necessary.
2) Fill in your information at the top of the form and then list your classes below.
3) Take it to your instructor(s) or to the course assistant before class, after class or during office hours ONLY. Ask them to record your progress. Please remember to have them sign it.
a) If your instructor does not have a grade recorded for you yet, you MUST have the instructor write "No grade recorded at this time" and sign it.
b) If you are taking classes online, please print your current grade report from Blackboard, if no grades have been assigned, please have your instructor email you confirmation of this, then print the email and attach it to the APR.
c) In addition, if you have a class you attend in person, and that teacher has grades available on Blackboard, you may also print this out and attach it to your APR.
NOTE: Please be respectful of your instructor and fellow students. Also, plan ahead! You are being notified early and should not be completing this EOPS requirement last minute. One month is more than sufficient time to complete this requirement. As always, we are here if you need clarification or have any questions about this requirement.
HOW TO GET CREDIT:
Turn the report form in to anyone at the EOPS front desk. They will give you a receipt to keep for your records, as proof that that your APR was passing and turned in on time. This receipt will count as one of your 3 required counseling contacts for the semester.
PLEASE READ THESE VERY IMPORTANT TIPS!:
~ IF YOU SHOW UP ON THE DEADLINE DATE AND YOU ARE MISSING INSTRUCTOR SIGNATURES OR FORGOT YOUR APR AT HOME, YOU WILL NOT GET CREDIT AND YOU WILL BE PLACED ON PROGRAM WARNING FOR THE FOLLOWING SEMESTER.
~ IF YOU SHOW UP ON THE DEADLINE DATE AND NEED TO SEE A WALK-IN COUNSELOR, BUT DO NOT HAVE AT LEAST AN HOUR TO WAIT, YOU WILL NOT GET CREDIT FOR THIS REQUIREMENT.
STUDENTS THAT DO NOT COMPLETE APR = FALL 2016 PROGRAM WARNING
The EOPS staff looks forward to serving you throughout this semester. Once again, please DO NOT WAIT until the last day to turn in your APR’s—as the office will be very busy and you may have to wait for a lengthy period of time. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Your EOPS Faculty and Staff
